Michael Zerafa is demanding to get a trilogy fight with Jeff Horn in 2020.
Zerafa stopped Horn in nine rounds back in August, in what was Horn's debut at the middleweight limit of 160-pounds.
Horn, a former WBO welterweight champion, exercised an immediate rematch clause and forced Zerafa to take a second fight.
The second fight took place on December 18th in Brisbane, with Horn winning a ten round majority decision.
During the fight, history appeared to be on the verge of repeating itself as Zerafa had Horn in very serious trouble and seemed to be close to a knockout victory.
Unexpectedly, the referee called for a break in the action for a ringside doctor to examine a cut on Horn. When the action restarted, Zerafa went back on the attack for the finish - but he was dropped hard when Horn caught him cold with a counter-hook. Horn would then score a second knockdown. The 10-7 round sealed the deal for Horn to win.
"I think everyone thought we had the fight there. I just wanted an explanation. There was no break in the action, how can you stop a fight to look at a cut that happened in round two," said Zerafa's trainer, Blake Caparello.
"You gave a break to a guy who had wobbly legs. It definitely affected the outcome ... the ref has to live with that."
Zerafa felt Horn was taking a bad enough beating in the ninth that it should have been stopped. After the fight, Horn's trainer Glenn Rushton revealed that one of the other cornermen had asked him to throw in the towel during the ninth.
"We thought we did enough in the night round ... the ref thought different," Zerafa said.
"It should have been stopped ... the whole ninth round he didn't throw a punch. The ref didn't think the same. One hundred percent there definitely should be a third fight. There should be a trilogy."
